Who says the music industry is dead? Eminem’s latest, “Recovery” has sold 753,000 copies in its first week in stores. This will easily hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. His last effort, “Relapse” sold 608,000 copies in its first week, but fizzled out soon after. Out of the seven singles released from “Relapse” only two made the Top 10. Already, the lead single of “Recovery”, “Not Alone” has hit #1 and it looks as if his duet with Rihanna “Love The Way You Lie” is on it’s way as well.
This just goes to show the industry, when you have innovative ARTISTS with good music people will buy it. Look at Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, etc. Don’t give us manufactured crap and we’ll buy the music!
